The Curious Bards

Since 2015, The Curious Bards has united five musicians, who love Gaelic and Celtic traditional music. These five musicians had an early music education and have studied in prestigious institutions in Lyon, Paris and Basel. Their musical paths have integrated traditional Irish and Scottish practise for many years.

This project is born of the desire of Alix Boivert, violinist graduated from CNSM Lyon, after several years of self-taught learning of Irish music, and a research trip in Dublin.

The Curious Bards were chosen, in 2015, as a Young Ensemble in Residency in la Cité de la Voix in Vézelay. They have also benefited, since 2016, from the project EEEmerging carried out by the Ambronay Festival. They just recorded their first album, under the label Harmonia Mundi.
